About Kathryn Maeglin

Kathryn started her writing career as an award-winning journalist. But after too many years of being constrained by the facts, she began writing fiction. Her goal is to write entertaining and meaningful stories women can relate to, and to have fun doing it. When she's not writing, she's reading, eating junk food, or hanging out with friends and family, and probably talking too much. She's happily married and has two overfed, underemployed cats. Ten percent of Kathryn's net royalties will be donated to two charities that serve people dealing with cancer: Cancer Support Community and Pink Ribbon Connection.
